Jeffrey Strauss (Baritone)

Born: Buffalo, New York, USA

The American baritone, Jeffrey Strauss, debuted with the Buffalo Philharmonic at the age of seventeen. He studied with Yvonne Rodd-Marling in London and Gerard Souzay in Paris.

Jeffrey Strauss appears regularly with Apollo’s Fire in Cleveland and Tafelmusik in Toronto. During his twenty-five year career has performed with ensembles as diverse as The Consort of Musicke, the Chicago Symphony Chamber Musicians, and the Dave Brubreck Quartet. His longstanding commitment to music of our time is highlighted by premieres of works by Leonard Bernstein, Milton Babbitt, Ralph Shapey and Lawrence Axelrod. In February 2000 he took the title role in Monteverdi’s Orfeo in a production directed by Marshall Pynkoski of Opera Atelier.

Upcoming engagements include Orff’s Carmina Burana in Chicago and the Monteverdi Combattimento in Cleveland.

Jeffrey Strauss' performances are frequently broadcast on NPR, and he has recorded for Westdeutscher Rundfunk, the BBC, Minnesota Public Radio and Harmonia Mundi USA. He is also featured on the Appolo's Fire recordings of the J.S. Bach St. John Passion (BWV 245) and Monteverdi Vespers.
